dr. Marc Siegel, Fox News medical analyst and professor of medicine at New York University’s Langone Medical Center, told Fox News Digital last week that the president was not setting a good example for following the government’s COVID-19 guidelines. CDC.

“Not a good impression for a president who talks about mandates. He played too loose with this,” Siegel said last Saturday. “The antigen test is predictive of low infectivity if negative, but a high quality mask KN95 or better would have been a sensible precaution.”

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Biden was not wearing a mask on Wednesday because the group was socially distant.
